I was tempted but just didn't know enough about the componentry to decide on whether to go for it. I was wondering if anyone out there had seen anything like this and if this is something special or just something the owner cobbled from a kit of some kind? As it turns out, it had one bid. I really didn't know how to value it so I stayed out.

Not exactly a kit. Vector still makes the 3682-2 plug board; see http://www.vectorelect.com/Product/Plugbord/3682-2.htm

Home brew, yes. 70s, I doubt it. I think some of the chips there are newer than could be found on a 70s board but I can't read most of the labels and thus may be wrong.

All the date codes I can read are "76" or there about's so I would say almost certainly late 1970's. Definitely not a kit. Personally I think it was over priced, but if someone really wanted it...
